Microchip University provides you with the opportunity to learn more about general embedded control topics as well as Microchip, Atmel and Microsemi products. One of the courses Microchip University is offering is Charging Batteries from Solar. 

Charging batteries from solar efficiently is much more complicated than typical battery charging. This class will help you understand how to deal with the dynamic impedance of solar cells, apply power-point tracking algorithms, sizing your battery and solar array, and negotiating between tracking efficiency vs. the charge waveform required by your battery chemistry. In this webinar, Clemens Valens (Elektor) and Dan Holt (Microchip) will guide you through the course. They cover the most important aspects and give background information. They also show several videos from the course and go into more detail of the content of these videos. Of course, they will also answer all your questions in the Q&A session at the end of this webinar.
